3D Printer HardwareBenchtop and Low-cost SLSProduct Launch

Formlabs Fuse1 benchtop SLS 3D printer is now shipping

Prices and availability announced ahead of launch webinar event

With a low profile newsletter mailing and a video update on the company’s website, Formlabs has finally released the Formlabs Fuse1 benchtop SLS 3D printer for general commercial availability. Originally presented in 2017, the system’s launch was delayed by a number of events, including the latest COVD-19 pandemic but it now appears ready to enter the market for affordable, benchtop SLS technology, currently dominated by Sinterit.

The Fuse1 3D printer’s price will be starting from $18,499, with the complete setup starting from $31,845. It will come with Formlabs PreForm print preparation software (free to download and try) to import STL or OBJ part files, orient and arrange models, estimate print times, monitor your printers, and upload job files. PreForm’s part packing algorithms can automatically arrange many models in a build.

During setup and printing, an intuitive Touch UI walks the user through every step. The touchscreen displays a live stream of the print bed so the user can watch each new layer take shape. This camera view is also available from the PreForm software so users can monitor prints without leaving the desk, also tracking printers, teams, and supplies via the cloud-based Dashboard.
